Shinobi assumed his father's place in the Hellfire Club after X-Factor (1st series) #67. Shinobi's last living appearance was X-Force (1st series) #62. He was confirmed as still alive and powered after M-Day in the 198 Files. His murder at Sebastian Shaw's hands was first mentioned in X Necrosha #1. The resurrected Shinobi apparently survived Selene's defeat to reform the Upstarts, only to die again in Uncanny X-Men (5th series) #20 in a defiant act of suicide. He was resurrected once more on Krakoa in Marauders #3.
